High-purity solvents are synthetically-distilled organic chemicals with broad industrial applications. They are crucial for the synthesis of complex Grignard reactions in laboratory conditions and are fundamentally important for improving agrochemical and pharmaceutical manufacture. Yet high-purity solvents are also integral to the production of various commercial products, including perfume.
Solvents are substances that dissolve resulting in a solution. Scitech offers wide array of High Purity Solvents such as AR, AR/ACS, dry solvents, HPLC/spectroscopy, LCMS, GC, GC-HS etc.
Common uses for organic high purity solvents are in dry cleaning (e.g., tetrachloroethylene), as paint thinners (e.g., toluene, turpentine), as nail polish removers and glue solvents (acetone, methyl acetate, ethyl acetate), in spot removers (e.g., hexane, petrol ether and in chemical synthesis.
The use of inorganic high purity solvents (other than water) is typically limited to research chemistry and some technological processes.
